November’s entries are King Randor in his Filmation Monarch robes, Man-At-Arms’ 200X trainer Dekker, and the final entry in the 30th Anniversary, Castle Grayskullman! None of the entries are necessarily warranted releases– each come with their unique brand of fan polarity. All that said, the figures have their pros and cons, but nothing that hampers the awesome renditions of these important periphery characters.

This just in from Mattycollector: Apparently the mea culpa consolation present for Frosta’s reverse forearms (Not the hair, gray color, mechanical non-functioning wand, or unpainted back, SILLY) is in the form of a free figure. Lots to speculate right now!
